David was born on November 6, 1957 in Chicago, IL to James David and Betty (Bowers) Rudy. David had many roles in life as husband, father, grandfather, and friend; he always put everyone first. He was an electronic genius. He was passionate about his wife, kids and grandchildren, they were his life. His beloved dog, Puppy, was his world. David was a true family man. He would also give his shirt off his back to anyone in need. On the contrary, his pet-peeve was being called “sir”. He will be greatly missed.

David was preceded in death by his parents.
